Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a small bowl, combine Baking Spice with sugar and Mayan Sea Salt and fold all but 1 Tbsp. of the mixture into apple slices. On a floured surface, roll each pastry sheet into roughly a 17x12-inch rectangle. Transfer one sheet to 13x9 baking pan and press dough to fit into bottom and line sides of pan. Sprinkle pastry-lined pan with half the Freeze Dried Corn and top with half the spiced apple slices then repeat those layers. Place remaining sheet of rolled pastry on top and crimp edges with fingers to seal. Cut a few slits in pastry dough top, brush entire surface with egg and sprinkle with remaining 1 Tbsp. spiced sugar mixture. Bake for 40 to 50 min. or until apples are tender and pastry is golden brown.
